Did you hear Hostess filed bankruptcy after their employees walked out and went on strike because they wanted more pay for their time and efforts in making the most delicious and popular snack cakes and bread. Sadly consumers will never be able to taste the delightful goodness of Hostess Twinkies, Hostess Cup Cakes or even Wonder Bread ever again. When I heard the news I ran to store to get my hands on a few boxes. Funny enough other than Wonder Bread and those little round donuts that my family loves in the morning when we are pressed for time I don’t buy Hostess Snack Cakes very often unless they are on sale and maybe not even then.
This will be the last time my boys enjoy Hostess goodness. Years from now they look back on this photo and wonder…
What in the world was I eating?
The isles are filled with distraught lovers of Hostess products and some kids are even crying. Many are saying Hostess big wigs have something up their sleeves. They’ll regroup and go back into business and everyone selling Hostess Twinkies and Hostess Cupcakes on ebay for $20 – $500 a box will enjoy their profits now but all I have to say is check that expiration date people ’cause the box I bought from the store on FRIDAY actually expired TODAY!!
All I have to say is I feel bad for the employees that were just trying to feed their families and shame on Hostess for trying to break the Union. I’ve seen your salary’s and you couldn’t just give in a little? Hope you enjoy your Christmas knowing you put so many family’s out of work and ruined theirs.
One women in line told me she’d never buy them cause of what they did to their employees.
While another girl cried Debbie Swiss rolls don’t taste as good as Hostess Ho Ho’s.
Well all I got to say is I start my diet just as soon as we finish this box of Twinkies or perhaps I should just save my waist line and my cholesterol level from spiking and sell individual Twinkies on ebay or Craigslist for $50 a piece. We have 9 left!! Shhhhhhh.
Here’s something to think about. During bankruptcy all assets are sold. Even the name and recipes could be back on the market before too long. When investors see the cry from consumers missing these delightful tasty little treats they’ll scoop up Hostess and begin distribution once again.
